As a performer I have been playing for over fifteen years on the piano. I have received training at Vanguard University where my teacher's were graduates from Juilliard and Yale. I am now attending Arizona State University where I will be teaching music theory and receiving my Doctorate in Music Composition. I am a published choral composer, and have had my music premiered in the U.S. and Europe.
In August of 2012 I began teaching piano on a part-time basis. My teaching philosophy has always been to make sure the students understand why and not just how to perform something. I emphasize music theory along with piano lessons and expect the students to take the time to practice every week. I have taught children of all ages from 4 to 16 years old.
If you would like a female teacher please contact my wife who is also a teacher on take lessons:
